there is report of the young scientist who developed a compass which points
towards Jerusalem, seeming defying the laws of global magnetism

Thanks Richard for your explanation.
I still maintain that the layout is incorrect and my
questions is "why". Cape Town doesn't have a
Yemenite community!

This subject in fact cropped up in the English Press
in Israel last week, although the
article was a general one applicable to the world,
hence my remembering that I had also
some time ago queried Cape Town.

In Israel all heads of Tombstones face the hills of
Jerusalem. Maybe that is where "I will lift up mine
eyes unto the hills" comes from! In Jerusalem itself
the facing is towards the Temple Mount.

the story I heard was that because of the layout, the graves in nearly all
the cemeteries do not face Jerusalem. The graves in Pinelands 1 &2 are
facing Table Mountain, in keeping with the Psalm, I will lift up mine eyes
unto the hills.......
The burials are placed in alternate rows as all to face this direction.

Of course, the bigger question around the observant world is are the feet
closest to Jerusalem, or the head. If the head faces Jerusalem then the
rising body, b'viat hamashiach and tchiyas hamesim, would have their backs
to Jerusalem---not good. I have heard the Yeminites have the feet nearest
to Jerusalem, thus, upon arising would be facing in the correct direction.

Hope this adds some clarification, or othwerwise,

Richard Newman

I have asked this question on numerous
occasions and have not received a satisfactory
reply. Hopefully, this message will now bring the
answer for which I am looking.

All over the world the head of a Tombstone faces
Jerusalem, which means that Tombstones are one
next to the other in rows. In Pinelands cemetery in
particular, Tombstones are back to back. Therefore
not all heads of Tombstones are facing Jerusalem as is in Jewish
Tradition.

Is there a reason that Cape Town cemeteries are
different >from the norm?

Yad Vashem-Auschwitz Museum-Additional Data #poland

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

Following my recent posting I got several enquiries
frow which I concluded that I probably did not explain
myself properly.

Yad Vashem is posting in the Pages of Testimony(PoT)
not only testimonies submitted by individuals but also
data about victims >from other sources. They took the
monumental work of Klarsfeld about the deportation of
Jews >from France which includes tens of thousands of
names and posted them as seperate pages of testimony.
Did did the same with a thick volume published in
Germany about German Jews who perished in the
Holocaust.The Auschwitz Museum published in 1995 a
book which includes about 69,000 names of people who
perished there.Later they put that data on the
Museum's website. Recently I realized that the data
which was posted on that website was only partial.
Yad Vashem did an important job,they posted the data
from the book as seperate PoTs. The book gives also
the names of both parents of the victim.

In other words,if you enter the Yad Vashem website,you
do not look for the Auschwitz list!!!You just type the
surname,given name and place of the person you are
looking for. If he was included in the Auschwitz
book(and website)-his name will show up as it is a
page of testimony.

ROSNER From Krakow #poland

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

My name is Jacob Rosen >from Jerusalem. I am the son of
the late Leon Leib Rosner (1903-1999) who was the
youngest child of Jakub Chiel Rosner and Ittla Borgenicht. My
father was convinced until his death that he was the
only survivor >from his family and barely spoke about
his brother and 4 sisters. He never mentioned their
given names or married names.

Last year I managed to find out that a son of my
father's sister Channa, Reuven Orschutzer (b.1925),
survived and lives in Israel. He gave me the names of
the other siblings of my father. Following that I
discovered via Yad Vashem that the son of his brother
Abraham Meyer, Rudy (b.1920), survived as well and lives
in Florida. We reunited last year in Jerusalem (they
had not seen each other since 1938).

Now I have more or less the list of my father's
siblings:

1. Abraham Meyer b. 1890 in Gdow .Disappeared in the
USSR.

2. Channa Orschutzer b. 1894/5 in Gdow. Perished in
the Holocaust.

3. Erna /Esther Susskind b.1896? in Gdow .Perished in
the Holocaust.

4. Beila /Berta (surname unknown) b. 1897-9 married
and lived in Tarnow. Perished in the Holocaust
Mechla/ Michalina b.1901 in Dobczyce. Was a
Communist,married at a certain stage(surname unknown).
Disappeared in USSR.

5. Leon Leib b. 1903 in Dobczyce (my father).

My grandfather Jakub Chiel Rosner after whom I am
named was born in 1866 in Dabrowa Tarnowska to Rubin
Rosner and Malka Perlberg. My grandfather moved around 1905
to Krakowwhere he had a big storehouse of coal. My two surviving
cousins are named after our ggrandfather Rubin. Mechla/Michalina
is probably named after our ggrandmother Malka.

All this info was constructed >from www.shoreshim.org,
JRI-PL, Yad Vashem and my cousins' memory.

I wonder whether any one of you came across these
names and may shed some light on the two aunts of me
whose married names are not known to me. Thanks.

Re: mtDNA - Jewish or not? #dna

Naidia Woolf <rnwoolf@...>
 

I recently received my "Jewish" DNA results >from the FamilyTree DNA
testing service. What was tested was my mitochondrial (MT) DNA
which is the study of female genetic lines in human populations and
which identifies one's "deep ancestral ethnic and geographic
origins" on the maternal line. I was somewhat disappointed by the
results, having hoped to learn that I was Jewish going back many
generations. Specifically, what I expected to see in the results
was that I was a certain percentage "Jewish" (or rather Middle
Eastern) and a certain percentage European (or Eastern European). (A
few months ago I saw a program in England on which an English woman
learned that she was 25% South Asian (Chinese) and the rest
European. Her father was half Chinese.)

The mtDNA results revealed that I belonged to a haplogroup (genetic
population group) known as haplogroup V which migrated 35 - 50,000
years ago to Spain and Finland.

Unfortunately - as explained by the Jewish DNA expert at Family Tree
DNA - because being Jewish does not comprise a race or ethnicity, it
is impossible to determine whether a person is Jewish, only that
there may or may not be a strong possibility of being such, based on
migration patterns and mutations that occur over time within
population groups. In my particular case, because of my dozen or so
genetic matches to other (presumably Jewish) people whose mtDNA has
been tested by the same agency, there is a strong likelihood that I
am Jewish, not that I ever doubted it!

Yad vaShem-Auschwitz Victims-Additional Data #galicia

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

Dear Genners and Siggers,
As you probably know the Auschwitz Museum website has
an alphabetical list of 69,000 victims who were
executed there,including non Jews.I just discovered
that Yad vaShem has posted the same list on the PoT
section but with additional data:
the names of the victim's parents. Thus I now know
that the parents of my relative Hermann KOENIGSBUCH
from Michalovce were Joseph KOENIGSBUCH and Helene
BLAS. Only by having his father's given name I know
how he is connected to me(Joseph and my grandfather
Ascher were brothers).
I assume that BLAS family is >from Slovakia. If it
rings a bell I would like to hear privately.
